Rated 5 out of 5 by No issues Runs smoothly, great to set up. Nice package. No problems so far 24 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by AMD always gets a hammering.... I research a lot before purchase, the general theme is if it ain't AMD then bin it. I've used the X4 Athlon 635, Phenom BE 965, FX8350 with 10-20% stable overlock and I've never really been so hassled by performance to date. I find it all comes down to your expectations, your budget and what you will be doing. Combined with a good GPU (heck I just upgraded my 5 year old 965BE with a GTX750ti - plays fine on most games!) this will be fine for most things gaming and general office and soft (as in not intensive!) video editing. I wouldn't entertain or consider comparing it to intel, you'll want this if you have a budget and know what your activities require; this can do it. Aside from this CPU I'd say the FX8350 performs very, very well in the FX range, the rest seem to just be alternatives if they take your fancy! 08 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Budget Bargin Poor man's Hexacore. Probably the best budget cpu you can get. I did my research and looked into all chips under 100 quid. It was a toss up between the FX6300, FX4350 4.2ghz or the Pentium K Anniversary G3258 which has 2 amazingly fast, very overclockable cores. I went for the Hexa core because i believe DX12 will bring multithreading to the mainstream in 2016 and that's where the strength of this chip is. It's single core performance is better than the 9xx Phenoms but is really weak compared to intel i-series. GTA V mostly maxed out with my [email protected] runs at about 70-80% cpu usage, 100+fps @1080 all day long while only hitting 50C. I do have a gtx980 G1 tho so still might be some bottleneck but not much with the 4.4 OC. GA-970A-UD3Pr2 8+2 with VRMs @ 40-50C. Great combo @150£ on Scan with great service as always. 01 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMD FX 6300 Marvellous It has been a surprise inclusion to my computer build which was well worth the purchase. 26 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great overclocker at a great price! I have had this CPU for about 9 months and have had no problems with it. I have managed to overclock it to 4.5Ghz on a pretty average CPU cooler. It has been good in games and rendering and i can't see it going bad anytime soon. I have always been and Intel fanboy but after switching to the FX-6300, I have to say that im impressed for this price. 26 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Over-clockers wet dream With a half decent motherboard, you can expect great things from this one. With an amazing 4.1Ghz boost clock you can get great performance with very little over-clocking experience. With experience you can get even more out of this fantastic clocker. The FX series will never compete with the likes of Intel in this generation. Its an unfortunate fact, but its not all doom and gloom on AMD's part. At this price point, its competing against Intel's mid range i3 CPU's and if I was to pick between the two, this could be it. The insane clock speeds this thing can achieve needs to be seen to be believed, especially considering how stable it is. What's more is the temperatures barely fluctuate until you reach the higher end of its potential. Over-clocking this with a 125w cooler was more than enough to clock it at 4.4Ghz and keep the temperature under 50 degrees. At boost speeds, idle temps read 21C in a moderately aired case. Temperatures under load rarely go above 45C. There is so much to squeeze out of this one for the price. For a little more it may be worth considering the 8350, but with these performance gains and low temperatures I can't think of many situations where a CPU like this is more than enough performance for such a good price point. 17 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job, excellent price. As it says on the review summary, great for price. 19 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, but stock fan is puny This CPU worked great. The stock fan that it came with was tiny and looked flimsy, so I bought a bigger one and the temperature has remained low. 13 May 2015

Answer: 
Hello,

This CPU does not have onboard graphics as its an FX CPU, if you want onboard graphics you need to buy an APU for example AMD A10, A8, A6, A4 or an Intel Pentium with integrated graphics.

Answer: 
Any motherboard with the AMD 980G, 880G, or 890GX chipset which has a ati 4000 series GPU built in the motherboard should be fine. Just double check to make sure though.

But I would highly recommend that you either get a Dedicated GPU or an AMD APU. An APU will run all programs and even some games but I'm guessing your not into that type of thing because your thinking of going with onboard MOBO graphics.

Have a look at cheaper GPU's or even APU's. Just remember APU's need different motherboards with different sockets.

Answer: 
I assuming 'mobo' stands for Motherboard, but I have no idea what 'ob/ graphics' stands for.

Could you perhaps post another question without the abbreviations so I can look into it?

Thanks.

Answer: 
In short; you don't want an M/B with onboard graphics. Budget or spend less on another part and get a decent GPU. Without knowing what you will be doing or spending no more can be said.
